THE WOMAN, THE MYTH, THE CELEBRANT
My name is Rebecca, or Bec, or Becky… any variant you’re most comfortable with (although Rebecca is what Mum calls me when she's angry).
I have an honours degree in law, a degree in communication, I'm a woman of many interests, animal lover, professional third wheel (celebrant) and NSW Justice of the Peace.
I used to advertise that I was cool and under 30...but the inevitable passing of time has rendered that untrue...but I am an avocado-eating Millennial if that matters? I grew up in Raymond Terrace and now reside in Newcastle. I am a fur-mother to two rescue dogs (Eddie and Gus), two rescue cats (Audrey and Ned).
I love dogs, gardening, fixing the never-ending issues in my 1950's house, halloumi and pickles, watching strange documentaries (or getting into an obscure youtube funnel), being 6ft tall, arts and creative things, growing my hair and cutting it short again, floral dresses... I'm a homebody who likes to make my own fun and I can definitely talk too much about subjects that I'm passionate about.
My "day job" is with a government department in policy. I love my job, because I get to serve people, and humans are just so darn fascinating!
I have no plans to quit my day job and because of this, I'm sticking to legals only ceremonies at this point in time in an attempt at work-life balance.
I'm not in the business of booking as many gigs as possible. I'm a marriage celebrant because I enjoy the work. Becky Married Me is my labour of love, my hobby... you could say side-hustle (but I'm not much of a hustler tbh).
Importantly, Becky Married Me is an inclusive space. Sexuality and gender diversity is welcome here, as are all (legal) ages, age gaps, cultures, nationalities, backgrounds, sizes and abilities. I maintain an open minded, non-judgemental and flexible approach to my work, and life. I know it can bring a sigh of relief to some couples to know this off the bat.
At the risk of this becoming a personal essay, I invite you to go ahead and check out my videos, client reviews and social media (@beckymarriedme), so you can feel comfortable in your decision.
